Search Consultancy is seeking experienced Carers to work on a permanent basis to provide the highest quality of care and support to our client based in Peebles.

Our client believes in a work/life balance so you will be working 3 shifts per week either 8am - 8pm / 8pm to 8am. Of course you can always top up your shifts, which is the beauty of the flexibility of this role.

Some of your roles & responsibilities as a carer will include:

* All aspects of personal care, assisting with feeding, bathing, washing & dressing.
* Carry out weight checks and blood pressure checks
* Record keeping on all charts (feeding, activity etc.)
* Following care plans
* Getting to know clients and their interests and needs


It takes a very special and dedicated person to be a Carer. It is physically and emotionally demanding but with the job satisfaction that you will receive it will make the job worth it.

If you have 1 years' experience in the care sector, skills in communicating with tact and sensitivity; have the ability to remain calm under pressure and cope with challenging behaviour then we want to talk to you.

N/SVQ2 or equivalent in Health and Social Care are desirable but not essential as full training and investment in this qualification will be given.

Please get in touch today to discuss this opportunity further! (Agy)
